“The Criminal Code stipulates up to eight years imprisonment for a person who uses a fake document for higher education,” Rusi Alexiev, Deputy Chief of the Sofia Regional Prosecutor’s Office, told Klassa.
On Tuesday, the Sofia Regional Prosecutor’s Office initiated an investigation into the false diploma of the former head of the Agriculture Fund. Pre-trial proceedings have begun to cover the origin of the diploma and who produced it. “Kalina Ilieva will be questioned, as well as many officials to whom she presented this document,” Alexander Nalbantov, head of the Sofia District Court, told bTV. The difference in the rector’s signature on the copy of Ilieva’s diploma and its original can be seen. An inquiry of the official from the university in Berlin will be ordered by the court.
